The perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a few days in Rockport staying at Motif #2 and we wish we had stayed an entire week. What an absolutely charming little cottage! The view off the large back porch is gorgeous, you have a direct view of the water. The studio was well appointed with all of the appliances and amenities we needed. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is newly updated and very clean. It's a scenic and relatively short walk into downtown Rockport (15 mins) and you pass by several beaches and some fascinating old homes.

Everything about our stay was perfect and we're glad we found this place. Sally and Frank were wonderful to work with and have done an excellent job. We will be coming back, as Rockport is now our new favorite getaway.

A beautiful studio in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in Motif2 & couldn't believe how comfortable it was both inside and out. Beautifully furnished & fitted out & the snuggler (love seat) turned into a very comfy bed in seconds.(My sister & I take it in turns to have the put-me-up/camp bed/kiddy's bed, but this time we both struck lucky!)

The location was perfect - just an easy walk into the busy centre of Rockport & Back Bay but a peaceful spot to return to.

Thank you Sally & Francis for letting us stay in your beautiful studio & for your great hospitality. Wish we could have stayed longer..

Perfect New England Getaway

  • 5 of 5

For a cozy New England getaway nothing could be better than Motif #2. The property comes equipped with anything you could possibly need or think of and Sally May and Frank are the best possible hosts you could ask for. Attentive, but not intrusive, they make sure you have everything you need including great local advice and suggestions. As a New England native who has moved away, this was the perfect place to stay for a homecoming visit. Motif #2 is within walking distance to Rockport while away from the summer crowds and there is so much to do on Cape Ann. I would highly recommend staying here and plan to do so whenever possible.

Beyond Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband was responsible for planning our honeymoon, and I am so glad he chose this location as our primary destination. Sally and Frank have truly thought of everything for this cottage from dishes to trash bags to towels... My husband and I truly felt like it was our home for the 5 days we were there.

It was also a beautiful location, close to the main attractions of Rockport, but just far enough away that you were still able to get away as well.

Not only was everything there that we needed, but we were also spoiled beyond belief with fresh flowers and snacks awaiting us and an opportunity to go ocean kayaking as well.

Sally and Frank, thank you so so so much for your hospitality. We look forward to visiting Motif 2 again in the future.

Perfect!! Everything was clean, appropriate, and within arms reach.

  • 5 of 5

If you are even considering going to the north east, go to Rockport. If you go to Rockport, stay at this home! The owners are super personable, the property is the perfect size, well appointed, the location is close to town, but not too close. I wish I were poetic, because I would say more! Just take my word for it, you have to stay here, perfect for one person or a couple.

extremely enjoyable, and delightful!

  • 5 of 5

I could not have wished for anything more than this adorable studio. There was such attention to detail and thoughtfulness in how the studio was designed. The owners could not have been nicer. I hope to return next year and stay a little longer.
